The Borolis are a Piedmontese family who have been in business in the region first in textiles, and now in winegrowing since 1831. Boroli is comprised of two estates: Cascina Bompe, in a small village just outside of Alba with its own winery and La Brunella in the heart of Barolo in Castiglione Falletto. In addition to the vineyards above, the property includes Villero and Borgata Cerequio both considered two of the Langhe’s great cru vineyards. Each vineyard has a particular terrior La Brunella has a mostly medium-loamy chalk soil with sand veins, and east to south, southwesterly and west exposures. The Villero exposition is south-southwest and the soil is a moisture-retaining mix of marl, clay and silt. Borgata Cerequio faces south and southeast on limestone and sand soil, at an altitude of 900 feet above sea level. The estate’s director is the winemaker Enzo Alluvione, who is assisted by his son Daniele in the vineyards. The estate’s consultant is the noted winemaker Beppe Caviola who was chosen a Gambero Rosso’s Winemaker of the Year in 2002.

Tasting notes
The color is very intense, ruby red. On the nose itoffers aromas of ripe forest fruits and undertones of vanilla while on the palate this wine is mouth filling with ripe raspberries and blackberries. There is a nice balance of acidity, alcohol and tannins followed by a long finish.

Rating

An elegant version, sporting cherry, raspberry, briar and tobacco flavors. Vibrant and balanced, with just a hint of tannins on the lingering, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2017. 4,300 cases made. BS
